A film dripping with melodrama and pretension.

[Director] Hernández's approach makes all the difference, trusting the camera to reveal the ebb and flow of emotions that sweep over all three men.

An endurance test notable mainly for its evocative cinematography and the well-toned bodies of its young male leads.

I could have gone out for dinner, come back and missed little of importance.

Boy meets boy like youve never seen in Julián Hernándezs sex-drenched, extravagantly minimalist epic.

Without dialogue, we don't know who the characters are, so we can't care about what they do.

This thing crawls over a torturous 140-minute running length, with teenage love given a dire gravitas which verges on the absurd.

It's hard to know what fetishes/obsessions/issues are at work here, but they do yield interesting moviemaking.

After such a triumph with A Thousand Clouds of Peace (Mil Nubes de Paz Cercan el Cielo) the second installment in Julián Hernández's apparent "Cielo" series is a sluggish disappointment.

I have jokingly described BROKEN SKY (EL CIELO DIVIDIDO) as the gay, Mexican version of THE BREAK-UP, although to be fair, this film at least has more sympathetic characters. ... But, at 140 minutes, [it] goes on far too long.

Hernandez's exquisite romance works on an emotional, as well as intellectual, level.

I suspect the film's frank, at times glorious rendering of queer sexuality will inspire more than a few closeted youths to brave life out in the open.

Love-making in Hernández' film is not a physical act but an emotional state expressed through physical action. Certainly not multiplex fare, but definitely one of the year's best films.
